STAR WARS: LEGION (Fantasy Flight Games, 2 players, ages 14 and up, 120 minutes; Core Set $89.95)
The Star Wars Universe has been the ideal place for a lot of good boardgames starting from the all galaxy strategic scale, like in Star Wars: Rebellion, (featured in the Fall 2017 Gamers Alliance Report) down to fighter to fighter scale like in X-Wings. With Imperial Assault, FFG started to explore the possibility of bringing the battle to a tactical scale involving only a few heroes and a small amount of troops. The skirmish rules were quite good and fun to play but still tied to maps and boards. With Runewars, for the first time FFG finally entered the miniature market: no board, just armies to assemble and paint. It was only a matter of time before the Star Wars universe got its miniature game. Star Wars: Legion is a skirmish miniature games designed by Alex Davy involving few heroes (usually one or two) leading squads of soldiers supported by a few vehicles.
